Interview: Photographer Dan Colisnic (Romania)


Can you tell us a little about you?

I am a Fine Art Portrait photographer, based in Romania.

How and when did you get into photography?

Since childhood I played with an old Russian camera. But the real interest in photography I found since my boy was born, looking for to keep the great moments of his childhood. Then, when my girl came into the world, I felt need to express my view about her kindness, putting her emotions in pictural stories. All these made me find an artistic way to put the beauty of souls into a lifetime image.

What does photography mean to you?

For me, photography is emotion.. It is an artistic way to develop myself too, to express my inner voice in relationship with the beauty of humans, with my viewers.


Please briefly describe your photography style for our readers.

I mainly deal with portraits of children, woman and family. I always try to create an emotional and pictural story about my subject, inspired by his life, passions or character. I found that I can do that in Fine Art Portraiture.


Where do you get inspiration from?

My inspiration come from their life stories. It is the result of a research process, a mixt of their personalities and my artistic view (based on my own emotions and an always process of learning).

Do you think in advance what you want in the picture?

For sure. I need to prepare well a photographic experience for my subject. Planning is a must, including key details about the character of my subject, the future composition, the colours, posing, lights. Anyway, no matter how well I am planning, in the end of my shooting I always let my subject feel the freedom he/she need in front of my camera. Some of my favourite’s shots are made in this way.


Studio, on location or both?

Both. But right now, I am in love with studio freedom of my artistic view. In fact, I am running a continuous process of discovering new ways of expression.


Would you consider yourself a hobbyist or a paid professional?

Right now, I am a hobbyist, constantly trying to improve my art.


What has been your most memorable session and why?

The greatest sessions are with children. No matter how well I am prepared, they are always unpredictable and that give to the final image a piece of their kindness and inner beauty. As for me, that means to recalibrate my artistic view, to keep their naturalness. A good idea is to ask them to put themselves in an imaginative story, always different then I can predict.


Nikon or Canon? Favourite lens?

Nikon for now, 50 mm lens mainly. But I am opened to any gear which can be a part of my creative process. I admit that I am tempting to take Canon in consideration because of their warm colours.


What is one piece of advice you would like to offer a new photographer looking to start their own business?

Always practice, learn from the best and do not be afraid of the failure. Most important, follow your heart and make good connections with people in front of your camera. They put in your hands a piece of their soul, with trust and emotions, so take care of it.


What do you think of our new magazine?

I am really honored to be in the attention of your magazine. It is motivating for me to keep follow my artistic road. This is the moment when I want to thank you for that opportunity. Keep up the high level of your magazine.
